Audit Scotland recently concluded that social work in Scotland is at a ‘watershed’, with fundamental decisions needing to be taken on how services are provided in the future. They stressed that the public and people who access the range of social work services provided across Scotland must be more involved in shaping future provision, with a debate required 'on the level, the nature and affordability of services.'
The ALLIANCE, Audit Scotland and event partners would like to invite you to explore the report’s findings and contribute to the debate on the future of social work in Scotland.
The event will take place in Glasgow on the afternoon of Wednesday 30 November, and will bring together a range of stakeholders to consider the issues raised in the report, stimulate discussion and gather views on the future direction of social work.
Event partners include: Iriss, Scottish Care, Coalition of Care and Support Providers (CCPS), the Third Sector Health and Social Care Support Team and the Scottish Social Services Council.
The event will bring together people who use support and services, unpaid carers, third sector organisations, providers of health and social care, social workers, scrutiny bodies, Scottish Government officials, councillors and other politicians.
